Hi, I'm Robbin from Heber Springs, AR. I am a caregiver for my mother who was diagnosed in May 2005. I have lived here since I was a little girl and I've stayed here to raise my family. I am married to a wonderful man who supports me and takes over my job of stay-at-home mom when I have to go take care of My Mom. She is being treated at UAMS hospital in Little Rock, AR, home of MIRT (Myeloma Institute for Research & Therapy)!!
We have two beautiful, intelligent children, boy 6 and girl 2 years old! And I have two younger sisters who both live here and we take turns going with Mom to UAMS. They both work in the medical field...( RN & RT (resp. Therapist.) ) I am very proud of my sisters...Even if they're BRATS!!

Heber Springs is a wonderful small town (pop. About 6000). We have the Little Red River, and the beautiful Greers Ferry Lake, which make our town a great vacation spot in the summer. We are famous for the world record trout that was caught on our river!

Some of you women may have heard of Aromatique, a decorative fragrance & candle company...It's based in Heber Springs! Their candles & decorative fragrance are sold all over the world!

I am most proud of our lake, the Dam was dedicated

by president Kennedy, it was his last appearance

before that fateful day in Texas.

We are also famous for our .....

Cardboard Boat Races held each summer, usually in July. Man It's hot out there, but it is a lot of fun. Most of the cardboard boats are worked on for many months. Yes, they are completely made of cardboard!

Well folks, that's about all I can think of, for now. Tell me what you think of my home town! I'll add more soon!
